Do you know how important it is to have a good looking smile? It’s very important. Think about when you meet someone for the first time, whether you’re on a date or just out and about. When they walk up to you, what’s the first thing you notice about them? Is it their eyes? The shape of their nose? Is it the way their hair looks? Chances are it’s none of those. Their smile is on full display whenever they smile and if there are any imperfections, you’re going to notice them pretty clearly. A lot of things you do involve using your teeth. Smiling, laughing, yawning, talking, eating – they show in a big way. Now, think about when you’re at work conversing and working with your coworkers. Do you think your smile is holding you back from achieving a promotion or moving up in the company? Uneven teeth can be embarrassing for anyone that suffers from them, but you don’t have to anymore. Invisalign is one of the most sought-after straightening procedures available, and our Boston, MA office is proud to offer this state-of-the-art treatment. Are you ready for Invisalign, Boston?

Teeth Whitening 101
So, what exactly is teeth whitening? It’s pretty basic: it lightens teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration. It’s among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can vastly improve how your teeth look.
How do teeth get discolored or stained? It’s a slow process, but one that never lets up.
• Tobacco use
• Drinking dark colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
• Not taking good care of your teeth
Virtually every patient who prefers a teeth whitening solution sees moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile. However, whitening is not a permanent solution to discoloration.
Why Teeth Whitening?
Did you know during routine chewing, dentin remains intact while millions of micro-cracks occur in the enamel? That’s a lot of cracking. It’s these cracks that gradually fill up with stains, debris and other bacteria. Teeth whitening removes these stains and debris, leaving the enamel cracks open and exposed. Some of the cracks are re-mineralized via saliva, while others are filled up with organic debris.
Are there any benefits to getting your teeth whitened? You bet!
• It improves your appearance dramatically.
• It’s a self-confidence booster
• It improves attractiveness
• It is very affordable
• Whiter teeth are associated with beauty and a healthier lifestyle
• A whiter smile gives a youthful and energetic appearance
• It doesn’t have any harmful side effects on your teeth

How many metal dental fillings have you acquired? Many of us have managed to collect several metal dental restorations, especially if we first started receiving dental work many years ago. But recent studies have alerted patients to the many dangers and health risks associated with metal (silver amalgam) dental fillings. We share these concerns. That’s why we now offer new tooth colored fillings and metal dental fillings removal for decayed and damaged teeth. If you’re concerned about your long term dental health, schedule a tooth colored fillings appointment with Dr. Share today. Dr. Share is a highly skilled restorative dentist conveniently located in the heart of the Boston Financial District, now proudly renewing smiles daily throughout Government Center, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the surrounding communities.
The Problem with Metal Fillings
Amalgam is a combination of different metals that have been used in dentistry for over 150 years, and are still commonly used today. Amalgam consists of silver, tin, zinc, copper, and about 50% mercury. The problem is that mercury is a known deadly toxin, and prolonged mercury exposure has been linked to the development of serious neurological disorders, among other serious health concerns. Additionally, metal fillings can expand and cause tooth fracturing and new decay over time. Consequently, metal dental fillings can actually cause more oral health concerns than they fix.
The Tooth Colored Fillings Solution
Tooth colored fillings are made from composite plastic or porcelain and contain no metal whatsoever. They can attach to damaged teeth seamlessly, and will not expand or contract with temperature changes. They don’t conceal decay, and with proper care, can last a lot longer than their metal infused counterparts.
Don’t take chances with a mouth full of metal; schedule a tooth colored fillings appointment with Dr. Share today. Dr. Share is a trusted restorative dentist conveniently located in the heart of the Boston Financial District, now delivering quality care daily throughout Government Center, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the neighboring areas.

Many recent studies have shown that the health of your teeth and gums are a good indicator of your overall health. Gum disease is caused by plaque and tarter build up. Even if you brush and floss every day, some plaque will not be removed and will harden to form tartar. Only a professional dental cleaning can remove these harmful deposits. In the early stages, gum disease is usually painless, and many patients are completely unaware of its presence. In the more advanced stages, gum disease can cause sore and bleeding gums along with painful chewing and loosening teeth. Advanced gum disease has also been linked to more systemic medical conditions like heart disease, kidney disease and stroke. The only way to stop gum disease from wreaking havoc on your good health is preventive dental cleanings and comprehensive gum disease therapy. Make an appointment with Dr. Share for the gum disease therapy you need today. Dr. Share is a highly qualified general and restorative dentist conveniently located in the heart of the Boston Financial District, now proudly restoring smiles daily throughout Government Center, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the surrounding communities.
Will You Develop Gum Disease?
Gum disease is never harmless, but can range from simple inflammation to chronic disease. The two main stages of gum disease are gingivitis and periodontitis. With gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed after brushing or flossing. Gingivitis can be easily treated with improved oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings. When gingivitis goes untreated, it can advance to the more serious form of gum disease, periodontitis. With periodontitis, your gums may pull away from your teeth and form deep pockets of infection. At this point, your body’s immune system will begin to fight the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response mechanisms will start to destroy your bone and the connective tissues that hold your teeth in place. In a short amount of time, the bones, gums, and tissues that support the teeth are left in ruins, ultimately resulting in the loss of your natural teeth.
Can Gum Disease Be Reversed?
In most cases, yes. Gum disease therapy focuses on controlling and eliminating infection. The number and types of treatment necessary to do this will vary, depending on how far your gum disease has advanced. All treatments require that you improve upon your daily oral hygiene routine. In addition, Dr. Share will use deep cleaning treatments like scaling and root planing, to remove the harmful plaque and tarter deposits. Scaling involves the gentle scraping off of tartar from above and below the gum line, while root planing smoothes out rough spots on the tooth root where bacteria accumulates, helping to remove the bacteria that contributes to the disease.
Don’t allow gum disease to ruin your good health. Preserve your natural smile by making your gum disease therapy appointment with Dr. Share today. Dr. Share is trusted throughout Boston, including the Financial District, Government Center, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and neighboring areas.
